Beaches of Saint-Jean-de-Monts
The Atlantic, its tides and the sunsets will take you out of your daily routine. The beaches unroll fine sand as far as the eye can see. 22 beaches stretch over 8 kilometres. Gentle slopes and the absence of cross currents make Saint-Jean-de-Monts an ideal seaside resort for families. The beaches of the Estacade, the Nautical Base and the golf course will provide you with a magical view of the dunes and the 400-meter pier. Due west, the more urban beaches have the enchanting names of Les Demoiselles, Les Oiseaux or La Baigneuse. They combine seaside entertainment, ease of access, simple pleasures of water games and sunbathing. More wild, the Davière, the Parée du jonc and the Tonnelles will reveal their secrets at the end of the forest paths.
Enjoy the benefits of the ocean. Practice sailing, paddle or water walking. It will restore your suppleness and muscle building, with iodized water, rich in trace elements, as its only complicit adversary. For fans of active leisure, try mini-golf, or even zip lines, tree climbing, archery, laser tag, and treasure hunts at Explora Park. At Youplaland, place for quads, and inflatable structures that children love.
En Vendée, everything is done for the pleasure of cyclists. Bike rental companies with the Accueil Vélo logo will help you avoid having to carry yours on the road to vacation. Vélivélo even offers delivery to camping. They will also be very good advice. The circuits benefit from inflation points, water points, picnic areas and toilets. You will love the Barre de Monts on the Vélodyssée. Fresh forest tracks, dunes and the Grande Plage of Saint-Jean-de-Monts are the backdrop. A delight ! Then continue to the Rochers de Sion, on the ocean. Then discover the old fishing village of Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez, towards Saint Gilles Croix de Vie. La Vie, what a pretty river… Other itineraries await you, such as the shells and pine cones loop, Panoramas, Daviaud, Yoles, or Rochelles.
